Published: How Political Reception Contexts Shape Location Decisions of Immigrants

Our article on how immigrants decide where to live once they have come to live in a country is now properly published.

Using a conjoint survey experiment with a representative sample of recently arrived immigrants, we established that both political and economic factors play a role in location decisions. In the literature on location choice, economic consideration (e.g., taxes) are often highlighted. Here we show that financial considerations are not everything: the parties in power, the integration policies, etc. also play a role.

The article is available online for everyone to read, but you can also watch a summary:

How do immigrants decide where to live once they have come to live in a country? We ran a conjoint survey experiment to establish that both political and economic factors play a role.

Indeed, these political factors are often neglected in the literature: the parties in power, the integration policies, etc. Here we used a representative sample of recently arrived immigrants to show that the political context is just as important as economic considerations (taxes, etc.).

The article is now available online, open access for everyone to read.
